MLK Back to School Festival

The MLK Back to School Festival is designed to assist families with obtaining essential items needed to have a successful new school year, targeting elementary, middle, and high school students in economically disadvantaged families. In the past, we have donated backpacks and school supplies to more than 2,500 families.

Students receive free backpacks, school supplies, uniform tops and more. Vendors are also on site with informational resources, along with free snow cones and fun activities for children.
